COVID-19 Update

Unfortunately, we’ve had to postpone upcoming trainings due to the current COVID-19 lockdown. All face-to-face trainings have been cancelled for the remainder of this term and will commence next term when it is once again safe to meet. Our national office team will update you with training details as they come to hand.

We are all working from home. Please call your Regional Coordinator or 0800 693 323 if you need support.

Who is Caring Families Aotearoa?

Caring Families Aotearoa (formerly Fostering Kids New Zealand) was formed more than 40 years ago to help caregiving families. We are here to support families who open their homes and hearts to tamariki (children) and rangatahi (young people) in need of care and protection.

Our Support for you as a Caregiver

Strong support is vital to ensure stable and secure homes for children in care.
It is so important you never feel alone during  your caregiving journey.
Caring Families Aotearoa offers a variety of support, advocacy and information
to meet your individual needs.

Caring Families Aotearoa provides training and learning opportunities to help you in your caregiving role.
